WILTSHIRE'S WEPL Premier sides - Potterne and Chippenham - both picked up victories last weekend courtesy of strong bowling performances.

Chippenham responded to defeat by Potterne with a 64-run win over Taunton Deane at Hardenhuish Park.

Slade picked up 3-47 while Charlesworth recorded strong figures of 3-40 as Taunton Deane slumped to 214 all out.

Meanwhile, Potterne remain second in the table following a 119-run victory at home to Thornbury.

Set up by a wonderful 106 from opener Jake Goodwin and 61 from 37 courtesy of David Bromley, Potterne stormed to 389-8 on their own ground.

While a couple of Taunton batsmen passed 50, three wickets apiece for Tahir Afridi and Basil Akram helped Potterne bowl their visitors out for 270 in the 44th over.

In WEPL Premier Two Gloucestershire-Wiltshire, Warminster picked up the club's first win of the season by four wickets against Marshfield.

From there, only Jeremy Bond (53) passed 50 as Warminster restricted their hosts to 266-8 with Sam Pearce taking an outstanding 6-57.

In reply, Warminster's top three made 15 between them and had to be rescued by a stunning 141 not out from Gareth Schreuder.
